The Park Lands RideAbout follows the Park Lands Trail and takes in some of Adelaide’s iconic locations such as the Adelaide Zoo, the Botanic Gardens and historic sites such as the Adelaide Gaol and the West Terrace Cemetery. The route will also travel past playgrounds should the kids need a break from riding and kiosks should your family need refreshments. The official start/finish and Bupa RideAbout Village is at Elder Park.
If it is more convenient, feel free to start anywhere on the route but make sure you still collect your picnic at the Village. The total distance of the route is 16km however you can take a short cut from the southern Park Lands back to Elder Park via King William Road.
For the Park Lands RideAbout you will be given clues that will lead you to specific locations along the route. At the location you will find a treasure chest containing markers to stick onto your Treasure Map. Look out for our Bupa RideAbout team members on the route for help and information.
When you arrive at the Village, we’ll be there to check your answers and help you with any that you were unable to complete.
Check out your Event Day Guide for all route details and clues to your treasure hunt, and don’t forget to share your experience on Instagram using the hash tag #lifewithaplus.
